ICSSP 2018 invites the following kinds of submissions:

  • Full papers (up to 10 pages) that reflect completed and evaluated research on novel approaches to major software and systems engineering process challenges and in-depth experience reports of significance for the community. (Enhanced versions of the best research papers will be included in a special issue of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process)
  • Industry experience papers (up to 10 pages) that reflect cooperative research in industry-academia collaborations. Those papers are expected to report industry challenges and practical solutions. Contributions of this kind are expected to demonstrate a significant impact to practice.
  • Short papers (up to 5 pages) that describe research-in-progress (e.g. PhD research) or conceptual and position papers addressing open research questions and future research directions

Submitted papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the ICSSP Program Committee.

Important Note: Although many ICSE tracks and ICSE co-located events adopt a Double-Blind Review (DBR) process, the DBR process does not apply to ICSSP. Papers will be submitted and reviewed using the regular, non-blinded process.
